" Dear eBay member, We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to your eBay account from a
foreign IP address "...
spoof eBay email (see image below) is in HTML format (although it does look
like a text only email in order add a sense of authenticity to the link text).

link to eBay but it will lead you to a bogus eBay web form (see image below).

processed through a script located on the same server as the bogus content.
If you have received this email, please remember that it is very
common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly
different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different
provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common
place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first,
although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
